Majora ? Dark Souls...Sliding, are you seeing other games behind my back ?
I can handle whatever you have to tell me, but I need you to be real...
I played Majora way back before I found out about Halo. As for Dark Souls, I never played it.

But I'll tell you a secret, way before I got into Halo, I was playing Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl.

Geez, you must be around my stepson's age. I literally first gamed in 1977. Yikes.

The thing I couldn't stand about Smash Bros. was how you could wear an opponent down, doing everything right, and then suddenly, he unleashes one attack and you're jacked. Whah...

But I still recall the authoritarian announcement of "Captain Falcon !" As if everything he did was worthy of an announcement. Still better than Fusion Frenzy.
I'm in my 20s.

It's the glitches that got me interested (also, it's what my friends used to play). Super Wave Dash with Samus. It's basically the counterpart of Halo 2 sword flying except you can string it with other attacks for pure domination. There's also Infinite Dimensional Cape. Not nearly as versatile but it's still useful. :P

Captain Falcon was more or less the counterpart of Halo's Johnson. Overhyped and he lived up to it. xD

Well I used to play a mean Yoshi, Bowser, and Mewtwo.

I like my characters with decent jump and weight. You can guess why.

A bit floaty.

He's no Chief but he's a chef I guess.

Yep, SG, same as the boss's kid. I actually forbade him from playing CE Flood levels. (They gave me nightmares...) Was nice when he was old enough to go through the whole thing. I used to slaughter him in versus...I can still slap him down in CE & 2, but, anything newer... I just watch him on Live when he's visiting and appreciate what younger reflexes can do. 'He was once but the learner...' Is weird but cool to have someone to discuss Halo with in person.

  • 12.03.2012 6:00 PM PST

I don't talk about Halo with any of my real friends. Actually, come to think of it, if you exclude the time I played Halo 4 at my friends, I haven't talked about or played Halo since Spring. I guess I just like talking to you guys <3.

Sounds like my dad. He's the only person I've played Halo MP with and he's not that good. He enjoys rushing for the Hornet and Scorpion so I have a *secret* fear of them.

This and the B.net Halo 2 forums are a fine sanctuary.

Ha-ha. Sounds very familiar. We actually developed a one-kill rule for vehicles - you had to abandon it after the first kill. (Because I actually didn't suck with a Scorpion) Take it easy on the old man, Sliding. (Don't let him win, for cripes sake...just remember all he taught you and how easy he took it on you back in the day...) Is hell to get old. My Dad used to complain that I 'had better reflexes' when we'd play NHL 94. I though it was a load until I found myself fumbling to keep up with my younger counterpart in 3 versus.

If only there was an option for that. He has a tough time willingly exiting the power vehicles...

I try to but I tend to be too competitive. The only way I can be easy on him is if I try to trick/glitch (i.e. launching myself out of the Banshee, getting to the sniper spots).

Well, there's always the Anaheim versus Detroit option. We used to do that. Maybe make new rules where you can only melee or stick him for a kill. He - can do anything. I could still best pappy using a shabby team like Florida, and it was fun. Pops actually had a fighting chance and I had to dig deep. That way, a win is a win.

Good times, good times...

Halo 4's lack of custom games options and exploration is really frustrating me right now. I'm waiting for the modders to extend campaign modding options so I can finally make engagements more interesting.

If you're into frustration, may I please to recommend Spartan Ops...
My KDR in campaign...a distant memory. Mod something that resembles fairness for S.O. and I'm on the Sliding mailing list for life.

Spops is fun and annoying at the same time. Infinite lives really helps though.

The way they've made Spartan Ops, I don't think it'll be possible to mod it.

I'm still waiting for the modders to be able to get it working offline. But even then, it might not be accessible for everyone. :/

It's more...somewhat campaign, but not really. Am getting a little tired of hitting active cammo and having enemies deliver perfect headshots despite. (Same with an enemy getting nailed to the wall by a mounted gun and somehow being able to aim perfectly.) Am actually beginning to predict the douchey nature of "Just at that moment" enemy actions... I can generally get anything done on Legendary. Am thinking about inviting old Zumbo up for my latest attempts at achievements.

The camo works for once (it was worse in Reach), having saved me when engaging the Elite snipers on Requiem. But I'd still rather have that CE camo where I could have extended fun with it. It was a great way to get up close to the AI. Next up on the list would either be Halo 3 Cloaking or Arby's camo since my movement wasn't inhibited.

Basically:

CE camo > Halo 2/3 > Halo 4 > Halo: Reach

IMO

The camo generally is completely useless for the first 3-5 seconds, when you start shooting, or if you get close. That leaves you a good 10 seconds to actually do something productive with it.

@ nesty -hit me up if you need a partner. Zumbo is being a douche right now.

In Halo 4?

Does flaming people on forums count as an esport?

I'd be happy to help. I love Spops and I need dem achieves too...

Why Bungie, why would you do this?! - Halo Community


Posted by: Sliding Ghost
I must know what other games have it!!

Do tell us Invasion, of the games that are from 2003 and up. I still have enough Microsoft points to buy a game...


Republic Commando's AI was superb. In many situations, if you and your squad didn't push the enemy, they would start pushing you. The AI never "idled" like in CE, but the AI made combat fluid.

But if you play RC, you play it for the squad gameplay, though its multiplayer was also really good.

But I like it when they idle. :(

Is this available on the Xbox Live marketplace?

It might be, but its a classic Xbox game from 05.


Again, idling is replaced with smart "hunting" AI. Republic Commando is pretty fast-paced to begin with, you wouldn't even notice whether or not they like to idle because you too busy finding ammo for you weapons and re-positing and giving roles to your squad member for your next engagement.

I will admit the maps are...somewhat linear, but that's not out of laziness; its so squad combat is fully optimized.

Huh.

So it's a type of patrolling behavior?

Well I've seen it mentioned on the Flood several times. I'll check it out eventually.

Thanks for the offer, Misguided (&chicken). After ten+ years of playing with myself, am not sure I'd know what to do with a partner. (Insert "giggity." For reals, gave my headset to a guy at work. And I only have strategy for Ep. 5, Ch.1 achievement. The generator thing should be doable with 2 people, but, the survivor thing....uh...?) PM me if you're desperate. The Live trial is good for a few more days, but I'll only try on Legendary. Have only played 4 on Legendary, and, achievements be damned, I'm only playing it that way. Is my hangup.
